Sixth & I Signature Service & Experiences: Heart, Mind, and Soul

Led by Rabbi Shira Stutman and Rabbi Aaron Potek

Explore our Heart, Mind, and Soul Three-Track Package to connect to 5781. If prayer services aren’t your thing, at any given time, you can choose from any of the offerings happening simultaneously including workshops, meditations, talks, and more. All offerings are included with your Rosh Hashanah and Yom Kippur tickets. 

This year’s High Holiday experience will be unlike any that has come before. Whether you’re Jewish, Jew-ish, or just spiritually seeking, we want you to feel part of our community and connected to this extraordinary moment, even as you’re sitting on your couch. This experience will embody Sixth & I’s core values of inclusivity and learning by blending all the elements of a traditional High Holiday service with contemporary approaches to understanding spirituality.

During services, most prayers are in Hebrew, with accompanying intentions in English. You can follow along in a digital prayerbook with full transliterations and translations, or you can purchase a printed version of Make Waves: A Prayerbook and Spiritual Guide when you purchase your ticket(s). The guide includes all of the prayers you’ll see in the digital prayerbook plus additional opportunities for reflection.

We look forward to “seeing” you there.
